We heard rumblings that the DC ¡LUCHA EXPLOSIVA! line was canceled. We asked DC Collectibles directly what was up. IT IS NOT CANCELED. We got the following answer (in the image below). We decided to release our Toy Fair 2019 video footage of the line in the hopes that it would garner some interest in this concept again. Beneath that, we have the original press announcement and images released by DC Collectibles prior to Toy Fair 2019. #AFJ4LIFE
